what version of samba are you using?  samba 3 has built in (time of install?) LDAP user database replication.  Samba pre-3 you need to 
configure it to handle ldap user database...when you get an ldap controlled samba, the users automagically replicate when change on one 
system - -- there are numerous posts, sites. projects and threads regarding this - so finidng info similar to your concept should be easy.
